Amazon, Tesla Dealership Coming to Lower Hudson Valley
Amazon and Tesla announced plans to operate out of the Lower Hudson Valley.
Both companies are coming to the Town of Greenburgh in Westchester County, according to Town of Greenburgh supervisor Paul Feiner.
"Tesla is actively retro-fitting the former Joyce Leslie building on Rt. 119, for a showroom/dealer location. Amazon plans a last-mile facility in the Elmsford warehousing portion of the Town," Feiner wrote on Facebook.
Tesla has seven showrooms in New York, including two others in Westchester County in White Plains and Mt. Kisco. Amazon's facility is expected to open by the end of 2020.

Amazon has long provided delivery of large products such as televisions to couches, and we’re excited to continue expanding this offering to customers in the Westchester County area. We expect the site to open in 2020," Amazon said in a statement, provided by Feiner.
A new ShopRite, along Saw Mill Road, that will replace an old movie theater is also in the works, Feiner notes.
